Another chai sample form Zach S.

I didn’t prepare it on the stove because this recipe has white tea base. Something different!

Other than the white tea, the recipe has unusual ingredients – pineapple and coconut…

I drank without milk first. The only spice I could taste was the peppercorn, which was still rather weak. What also stood out was the pineapple, especially when I added a splash of milk to see how the taste would change. The pepper and pineapple combo strangely works…

It’s alright. Disappointingly, not terribly spicy, but I did the like pineapple aspect. Dad thought it was good, interesting even. With that and the white tea, this recipe is light on the tongue. Seems like it’s good to have on a cool summer’s eve.

From the Overboard TTB. Thanks to Beelicious for sticking this one in!

I was expecting more nuts from the name honestly. It’s a smokey roasted coffee chocolate tea. Good as a breakfast type I would assume. I would totally be loving this tea if not for the smokiness of it, but because of that I only finished half the cup.

I’m finding there is definitely a “first taste” bias, among tea tastings. It’s probably the case for everyone: most teas taste best when you tried it the first time. This applies to food as well.

From the look of the leaves, I expected it to taste like Lapsang Souchong, but it was nothing like. I was surprised how similar this one was to Tie Guan Yin. Hard to say how it is similar/different. Seems more nuanced and complex flavors than TGY. Less “refreshing” than TGY. Isn’t as overpowering with the caffeine as TGY. Definitely an Oolong. More on the green side than black in terms of taste and color of liquid.

Flavors: Grapes, Grass

Added 1t of sugar. Not bad. No clear or defining flavors. Can taste the raspberry leaves.

Ugh. One day I’ll remember how much I hate caramel/chocolate teas and I’ll stop buying them. I don’t know why I bought this.

It’s not the worst with a little bit of cream and sugar. Kind of like a caramel latte that way. I’m unsure about it. I’ve had way worse “dessert”-flavored teas, though.

On it’s own this is pretty gross. I think I’ll have to try it mixed with some vanilla comoro or a tea like that to get past the taste of this one. Which I can’t even figure out what I’m tasting.

Good flavor but very weak. The first steep will make you wish you could better taste the mineral notes. The second steep is not worth drinking.

Bright and vegetal with a slight buttery taste and body of a Chinese green. Second steeping is very weak.

drank Blood Orange by Adagio Teas
11 tasting notes

I love blood orange and this was not blood orange. The tea looks beautiful right out of the package and brewed up a beautiful color but that’s about the best I can say about this tea. The flavor is quite flat with a general citrus – orangey flavor. The rose hips add a bit and the hibiscus adds more to the visual appeal than the flavor. Would probably make a good iced tea mixed with straight black tea and probably a good tea to sip, with honey, when you have a cold. Doubt I’ll purchase this again.

added 1t of sugar. The lavender blends well with the tea, but I’m not really convinced it adds anything signficant.

Tastes nutty, almost like a muffin. I think it might taste better without the black tea.

drank Spearmint by Adagio Teas
33 tasting notes

I was torn between this and one of my Welcome to Night Vale teas, but as the day went on, my stomach felt sick(er), so mint tea it is!

The leaves smell very strong and cool. Tastes just like Bigelow Mint Medley, though, which is my usual go-to for mint, since we have tons and tons of Bigelow at work. Kind of disappointed, but not really. It’s a good mint tea.

drank Mocha Nut Mate by Adagio Teas
33 tasting notes

Oh, this is good. I bought it on a whim while I was on an Adagio tea-buying spree. I usually don’t like chocolate teas, but the notes on here convinced me it might be a good idea. You all were not wrong!

I thought I was accidentally over-steeping because I started talking to someone and not paying attention to my tea, but nope. Right on time. It’s nice and toasty and the chocolate/hazelnut taste is definitely there, but not too fakey-fakey tasting like some chocolate teas I’ve had.

Flavors: Chocolate, Hazelnut

Open the bag and the intense caramel aroma hits you. Once steeped, this tea has a nice smooth caramel flavor. This, unlike Adagio’s Caramel black tea, is all caramel. Love it!

drank Calypso Green by Adagio Teas

A bright and refreshing flavored green tea full of tropical fruit flavors. Lots of passion fruit and peach flavor backed up with coconut, mango, and citrus. The green tea gets kind of lost in the mix, but if you like fruity teas this is one to try.

Flavors: Citrus Zest, Coconut, Fruity, Mango, Orange, Passion Fruits, Peach

drank Lapsang Souchong by Adagio Teas
16 tasting notes

This tea literally smells like liquid smoke. It’s almost overpoweringly so. The leaves are really long and curly especially when compared to a loose Earl grey. Just ran up to go pour my tea. I’m using my tasting set from Adagio. Alright, onto the flavor. I only brewed for two minutes so the flavor is very light. The beginning is very mellow but it ends with a smoky tinge. It’s very interesting. I really don’t know whether I like it or not. I’m so used to the mellow sweetness of black teas like English Breakfast, so I don’t know what to make of Lapsang Souchong. Okay, I just added this with a four minute brew and added in some honey. The honey (I’m guessing) took some of the odd bitter weird note. It still smells like I’m drinking a campfire though. I have no idea what to think. I know! It tastes like Mesquite smoke from barbecuing. Where I come from, bbq is big and we use a lot of mesquite and that it what this tea tastes like.

Flavors: Ash, Campfire, Smoke

A lovely tea — very light yellow-green liquor, with a delicate flavor and aroma.
Very, very floral, but not punchy or perfumey; it reminds me of spring in the best way possible. A welcome treat for a cold winter day.

Flavors: Floral, Green, Vegetal

Added 1t of sugar. The pomegranate flavor does not come through at all, leaving an overall pleasant black tea with fruit notes.

This is a tea that I’m learning to love. The leaves have a very earthy scent with hints of smoke and roasting. It smells a little bit like a hojicha
—-edit, not sure where the rest of my review went?

The liquor is a medium amber color with a clean taste. It’s very mineral-y, but ends with a clean oolong finish that leaves you wanting more. It’s a complex cup but very relaxing and enjoyable. Future steeps reveal sweetness after the mineral taste dissipates.

Flavors: Earth, Mineral, Roasted, Smoke
